The academic program for the A.B.J. degree consists of two parts: Areas I-V of the General Education Curriculum (which includes foreign language at the second and third levels and micro or macro economics) taken during the first and second years at UGA or another institution and the professional degree program taken after formal admission to the Grady College. Pre-Journalism students at the University of Georgia are enrolled in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.

At the University of Georgia we offer a bachelor degree in Digital and Broadcast Journalism. It should be understood that admission to the University of Georgia does not guarantee admission to the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. A maximum number of spaces in each major is determined by the availability of teaching staff, classroom space, lab facilities and other resources. In reaching its decisions on how many students may be admitted each semester, the Admissions Committee is governed by the number already enrolled in each major, the number expected to graduate and the number applying. 

Grade point averages and test scores are considered the primary measures upon which admission decisions are based. It is recognized that the inclusion of talented students of diverse international and racial backgrounds is an indispensable part of the educational process and the Committee considers the need for such diversity in reaching its decisions. See Entrance Requirements.
